Hand and Facial Motion Capture


CyberGlove® II Wireless Data Glove

The wireless CyberGlove II system is a fully instrumented glove that provides up to 22 high-accuracy joint-angle measurements. It uses proprietary resistive bend-sensing technology to accurately transform hand and finger motions into real-time digital joint-angle data.

The CyberGlove system has been used in a wide variety of real-world applications, including digital prototype evaluation, virtual reality biomechanics, and animation.

Designed for Comfort and Functionality

The CyberGlove II data glove is constructed with stretch fabric for comfort and a mesh palm for ventilation. The 18-sensor CyberGlove II system includes open fingertips, which allow the user to easily type, write, and grasp objects.

System Components

The basic CyberGlove II system includes one data glove, two batteries, a battery charger, and a USB/Bluetooth technology adaptor with drivers.

Many applications require measurement of the position and orientation of the forearm in space. To accomplish this, mounting provisions for InterSense, Polhemus, and Ascension six degrees of freedom (DOF) tracking sensors are available for the glove wristband. Tracking sensors are not included in the basic CyberGlove II system, but are available as an option and supported in VirtualHand software. The Cybergloves work well with all of Meta Motion's full-body tracking solutions.

The CyberGlove II system has a software programmable switch and LED on the wristband to permit system software developers to provide the CyberGlove II wearer with additional input/output capability.

3D tracking devices are available that provide the CyberGlove system with absolute x, y, z, yaw, pitch, roll position and orientation information. Cybergloves integrate very well with all of Meta Motion's full-body motion capture solutions. A complete tracking system includes one transmitter, one receiver, a system electronics unit (with RS-232 serial port), a power supply and a serial cable.
